Steven Spielberg majored in English because his father said he needed a backup plan.
On the origin of dreams:
“When you have a dream, it doesn’t often come at you screaming in your face: “This is who you are, this is what you must be for the rest of your life.” Sometimes a dream almost whispers. And I’ve always said to my kids, the hardest thing to listen to — your instincts, your human personal intuition — always whispers. It never shouts. Very hard to hear. So you have to every day of your lives be ready to hear what whispers in your ear. It very rarely shouts. And if you can listen to the whisper, and if it tickles your heart, and it’s something you think you want to do for the rest of your life, then that is going to be what you do for the rest of your life, and we will benefit from everything you do.”
Thank you Danny Williams for this great find!
